More arson

It is unbelievable but there have been more arson attacks in Victoria and two small attacks in the Belair National Park. I wonder if they have been sparked by the publicity?
There is another sort of potential arson too - those fools who live in fire prone regions who refuse to clear the area around their homes because they believe it should remain in its 'natural' state. These same people would be the first to scream if their house was not saved in a fire, the first to say they should have the fire trucks at their home first because they are in the greatest danger. They do not mind essentially stealing from others when the insurance premiums go up for everyone.
Responsibilities have to come before rights when the lives of others, such as responsible neighbours and firefighters are at risk.
